Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

The Linux Experiment&#153 is just about over.&#160

Apparently, there are never enough client slots available for the maybe&#160 four-to-five apps I want to run at any one time.

Windows, as much as I hate it, never did this.

Stand by…

UPDATE:&#160 Just as a point of clarification, I’ve got a quad AMD A8-5600K 3-point-something CPU with 16 gigs of RAM – and, even though I devote 50% to a Windows virtual machine, I should have enough to run Firefox, plus open an explorer window, command prompt, and the text editor on which I’m writing this, with at least a little bit left over.

And Linux is telling me I don’t have the capacity?!?!?!

Fuck that.


Those who get at least a portion of their news from one of the network news shows have become accustomed to seeing the obligatory former military “analyst”  give his thoughts. While I really do not wish to denigrate these guys, most of them appear to be men who did a decent job while serving, but really did not distinguish themselves.

The same cannot be said for General Patrick Brady, in Vietnam, he had among the most dangerous of jobs an Army helicopter pilot could have. As a Dustoff pilot. General Brady flew unarmed helicopters into the thick of battle.His job was to evacuate the wounded, and for his service General Brady was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

People may not agree with what he says, or with his politics, but General Brady has earned the right to be taken seriously. This piece is well worth the read.


Just to be absolutely clear, this is not the Lutheran body of which I am a member!

This is What happens when any church rejects the teaching that God’s revealed word is inerrant.


Okay, so while prepping to go out Saturday, Mrs. Venomous & I are catching Police Academy&#160 on Comedy Central.

And they’re at the scene where Chief is doing the burglar coming out of the house exercise, and it’s Tackleberry’s turn.

And, as Cthulhu is my witness, this is what I hear coming out of the tube:

“DROP THE STEREO YOU G*****N ASS(silence)…”

Now, this I don’t get.

They let “GD” pass, but bleeped the “hole” part of “asshole”?

It helps, though, if you have Microsoft Internet Explorer  set about 1024x768 1280x1024 with your Favorites window activated on the left deactivated.  (At least until I can get a better handle on how WordPress works.)

(KORRIOTH:  Oh, great.  More wormholes.)

Mozilla Firefox doesn't do too badly, either; in fact, it's His Rudeness' browser of choice.
You can  use Nutscrape,  if you so desire - but why in blazes would you want to use a browser from a company that had to hide behind Janet El Reño's skirt to be successful?

And don't even  get me started on Opera or Chrome.  I'm not about  to trust any browser that won't let me change its color scheme.
